Please join us for the 5th annual CSA Fair!
Co-hosted by Common Ground Food Co-op, The Land Connection, Urbana's Market at the Square, and UBA's Urbana Market IN the Square.
At the CSA Fair, customers will have the opportunity to meet local farmers and businesses that offer CSA programs and buying clubs, learn about their farms or businesses, and select a share or club that best meets their needs! By partnering with the Urbana Market IN the Square people are already in the mindset of shopping locally when they visit the market. Reminding all customers that these CSAs are available, as well as highlighting some of the new CSA options being offered by vendors this year, will be a great way for interested customers to meet with farmers and learn about the importance and ease of CSAs.
